Arcade sticks who fit in the bag
Qanba’s
TE r1 and 42
Normal Horis like Soul Calibur V and STxTK
an i’m making 30mm plus version to fit Lightinh edge and MvC3 and real arcade HORI’s sticks

Price
R$ 180,00

Looks very weather resistant and I like the size. I would suggest add more padding to the stick area to prevent it damaging the ball top.


#3

what about a hard plastic “box” that sits over the stick itself?


#4

I was thinking a foam mold, like in the Mad Catz stick bag for TE and Pro Fightsticks. That’s the bag I use.


#5

i thinking about that, i will problably do anything like the madcatz, a circle foam to put in the stick . and yes is weather resistant, is same material as mountaing bags.


#6

I would buy if shipping wasn’t crazy to the U.S.


#7

i really don’t have a clue how much is, but i will try to find that info

Hello dennesss! I have a few suggestions on top of what everyone else has mentioned.

  • 2 removable shoulder straps. They get in the way when I’m not on travel. Plus they can be set the way single strap bags work.
  • optional inserts for people who have smaller arcade sticks.
  • external beverage pocket.
  • carrying handle

I have both the Madcatz and the Capcom arcade stick bags. They both have single straps. One has a drink holder. The other has a handle. Since you’re looking to put them into production, you should scope out the competition.

Agreed on all counts^

Who had the custom made aluminum carrying cases with molded foam inserts lined with velvet fabric?
That puts all the other Stick carrying cases to SHAME.

Hi, I’m looking for a fightstick bag I have a Madcatz TE Round 2 and a Madcatz TE “S” , I have in mind the Capcom bag or the Madcatz carrier, Which one is better? Considering other fightsticks in the future so in terms of size, if in the future I have a qanba or a hori for example, can I use same bag or its exclusive for madcatz sticks?

I just use a standard backpack or messenger bag.


#15

I just PM’d you.

Man, dennesss hasn’t been on in forever. Too bad. His bag looked like it had potential.


#17

I forgot all about that. Shame.
